Long Description:
This walking tour "begins" at the Downtown Kingsport office, which has the only Kingsport city flag I could find (Waymark WM4Z9G). Brochures are available if the office is open (Mon-Thurs 8-5, Fri 10-12, Sat-Sun closed). Total length is 1.8 miles per the route sign. The link below is a virtual copy of the stops.

This new category also gives me another point for the Lucky 7 - Church Circle challenge (Waymark WM4QTK), leaving only Animals as a missing department.

Many of the stops have already been waymarked
